Hello to all Air Streamers

I'm new to your group and look forward to finding an AS trailer that is road ready and fits my sense of asethic taste. I've in the past had a Land Yacht 25 and a 33' Silver Streak.

Hi JMarie, greetings from central Kentucky and welcome to the forum. Good luck in your search. I suggest you research your tow vehicle to determine what you can safely tow, as the starting point. If you plan on buying a tow vehicle then you should determine what size of AS you want, then you'll know what tow vehicle you need to purchase. Cart before the horse or horse before the cart?

Hi from Colorado: There are lots of road worthy, or "travel ready" Airstreams for sale. That's the easy part. But "sense of aesthetic taste" is much more difficult. Being a left brained nerd, I always chose function over form. If it works good, I can live with the looks.

The advice on tow vehicles first is good. Make sure you know what you need to tow a new to you Airstream home.

Welcome to the Forums.

David

Hi Rich, My current tow horse is a Toyota Tundra 4.7. I've been hauling a box trailer full of furniture and belongings from Ca. to New Mexico. I've made 4 trips. Tows just fine. But I fancy the Classic AS. So I'm thinking about up grading to the Toyota Tundra 5.7 engine. Thanks for giving me a heads up on this as the Classic has got more weight. So much to consider.

I pull our 23' Safari with a 2004 4.7L V8 4Runner. It does a very nice job, very steady on the road. Alas, the 23' is maximum I would want to pull so if we up-size it means a new TV for us as well and I would chose the Tundra 5.7L also.
